On the 5th of July, Jacob and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary! 10 years! Crazy! He totally spoiled me with a weekend away, just the two of us. And it was AWESOME! We dropped the boys up at the Great Auntie and Uncle's house and drove up to fabulous New Plymouth! Who knew New… Continue reading Winter Holidays, Anniversaries, and a Volcano
Over these school holiday - which did drive us all a bit mental - I've been thinking about how I photograph. How I photograph life, our family, our experiences, and ways to really start making this more than a hobby again. I was lucky enough to start photographing weddings at the Wellington Zoo! It is such an… Continue reading Another trip to the Wellington Zoo and photographing your children
We aren't an overly political family, but somethings can really grind our gears. So this weekend, the boys participated in their first protest march! Well, rather, they came along for it with us and got to witness democracy in action! Of course, there was a little playground action first. If you aren't aware of what the TPPA… Continue reading TPPA, Go Away!
Life with twins can be hard enough, but what do you do when you have to climb 72 step everyday to leave the house, with two babies in tow?
Goodbye, Autumn. Hello, Winter.X

I received a call after 3am last Sunday morning. The worst kind. From the hospital. From the ED. Jacob was there. He didn't know what happened, but was able to recall our phone number. "He's in and out of consciousness and has a lot of swelling to the side of his face." the nurse told me.… Continue reading So when the horrible happens…
Ok. Totally crying. This past week, one of my bestest friends in the whole wide world came to visit us in NZ. It has been a whirlwind trip for them, visiting so many places in such a little amount of time. But I feel so lucky that they spent a week with us here in Wellington.… Continue reading Such a beautiful week…
"Go see the ducks." "Off to see the ducks." A couple weekends ago while we were enjoying some of that summer heat, Jacob suggested on a Saturday night that we should go the next morning and see the ducks down at the Wellington Botanical Gardens. The boys were keen. It turned out to be a lovely… Continue reading Duck!
In case I haven't mentioned it before, some of Jacob's family moved recently, closer to Wellington which is awesome, into a gorgeous, 100-year old farmhouse. It's beautiful, peaceful and quiet. It's just outside of the town and surrounded by rolling hills. If we didn't have the house we have, I would have killed for this house!… Continue reading Another summery sunny weekend in Whanganui
